Migrants win right to stay in UK through 'proxy weddings'

Exposed: Migrants win the right to stay in the UK with wedding they don't even turn up for! Ruling after Ghanaian's marriage 3,000 miles away - to a German

  • Ghanaian man has fought a landmark four-year legal battle to live in Britain
  • He had a 'proxy wedding' 3,000 miles away which he did not even attend
  • Neither Albert Awuku, 43, or his German bride needed to be present
  • Instead, they are thought to have been represented by their families in accordance with Ghana's 'customary law’ on marriages

Then-home secretary Theresa May refused his application for residency because she was not satisfied Mr Awuku’s ‘claimed marriage’ was registered in accordance with Ghanaian law.

Her decision was later overturned by a judge at a first-tier immigration tribunal – who was happy with the documents provided by the couple and satisfied the wedding was ‘properly executed’.

But Mrs May appealed to a higher tribunal and won. However, Mr Awuku then went to the Appeal Court to challenge that ruling, claiming that his human right to a family life with his wife – who is of Ghanaian descent – had been breached.

Now after a four-year battle, Mr Awuku – represented by human rights barrister Zane Malik and a London-based solicitor specialising in proxy marriages – has scored a major victory at the Appeal Court which has paved the way for him to be granted residency in the UK.
